An Ultrasound Approach to Nerves: Optimizing Diagnosis and Treatment of Entrapment Neuropathies for the Lower Limb

INTRODUCTION

Given the ever-changing healthcare environment, neurologists, physiatrists and sports medicine physicians need an opportunity to optizmize their skill sets in reference to the diagnosis and management of nerve injuries and diseases. This course is designed as a review of ultrasound techniques for diagnosis and treatement with regard to the patient with peripheral nerve dysfunction. For those that want to enhance their electromyographic practice, attention will be placed on integrating both sonographic and electrophysiologic technologies for optimal patient outcomes.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Learn how to identify normal peripheral nerves with high frequency ultrasound.
  • Learn how to identify sonographic abnormalities in peripheral nerves in pathological conditions.
  • Learn to use ultrasound to identify nerves for guided procedures, injections and blocks
  • Gain a better understanding of peripheral nerve structures
  • Learn to use ultrasound to assess peripheral nerves during electrodiagnostic testing.
  • Learn to identify nerves as part of the musculoskeletal exam
  • Learn to identify nerves in normal and pathological conditions as an adjunct to electrodiagnostic testing
  • Improve acumen and skills using ultrasound for peripheral nerve procedures and blocks

Controversies in the Postoperative Shoulder

A Course Designed for Orthopaedic Surgeons and Non Operative Clinicians with an Emphasis on Ultrasound

INTRODUCTION

Whether you’re from orthopedics, physiatry or non-operative sports medicine, this course addresses common problems which significantly alter patient outcome and recovery following operative and non-operative shoulder procedures.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Learn how to sonographically address the postoperative shoulder
  • Join the foremost authority and his team on shoulder pathology and ultrasound
  • Review models on how to track and trend patient outcomes for MACRA, MIPS and PQRS compliance
  • For an enhanced participant experience, live post op models will be present . . . NEVER BEFORE SEEN

A WORD FROM OUR COURSE CHAIRMEN

“Evaluation and management of the postoperative shoulder can be a very challenging problem for the musculoskeletal physician and is compounded by difficulties with imaging the shoulder following surgery. Diagnostic ultrasound has been demonstrated as an effective and efficient modality for the evaluation and management of all shoulder disorders and has been extremely beneficial in the postoperative setting.  This course unites the disciplines of Orthopedic Surgery and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation to maximize the evaluation and management of the postoperative shoulder patient with an emphasis on the utilization of diagnostic ultrasound. The course will center on disorders affecting of Shoulder Motion, Strength, Stability and Smoothness and includes both didactic lectures as well as hands on ultrasonography of post-surgical shoulder patients.  Following this course, all musculoskeletal physicians should have a comprehensive understanding of current Orthopedic Shoulder procedures, their most common and challenging postoperative complications and should be confident with the ultrasonographic evaluation of these conditions.”  Dean Ziegler, MD

“Management of problems in the postoperative shoulder patient presents unique diagnostic and treatment challenges for both surgical and nonsurgical providers.  Often times these problems tend to fall into four patterns of deficiency identified as problems with strength, motion, smoothness and stability.  We have organized our conference around exploring and illuminating an approach to each of these areas of concern from the surgical and nonsurgical perspectives. Because ultrasound plays a key role in assisting with diagnosis and management of these conditions, this imaging modality plays a key role in this exploration.”  Nelson Hager, MD

Ultrasound EMG Integration: The Anatomical and Electrophysiological Diagnosis

INTRODUCTION

Clinicians that perform electrophysiologic testing are on a quest to localize the functional loss and provide an objective data set for an appropriate clinical diagnosis and ultimate treatment. To completely evaluate the pathology of the nerve, structural images are necessary and should be obtained via a quick and cost-effective modality.  Although MRI is available, it does not provide information on vascular flow or dynamic abnormalities that are often needed for a full neuromusculoskeletal examination. Concomitantly, it can be cost prohibitive and rarely can it be done in concert with electrophysiologic testing.  Ultrasound provides the answer and is more practical for routine screening of common nerve abnormalities both from a cost containment perspective as well as convenience for both the clinician and, most important, the patient.

ExEd provides the educational platform to not only teach clinicians the basics of electrophysiologic testing, sonographic assessment of nerves but most importantly how they become integrated for optimal patient care and outcomes.  The ExEd curriculum is designed for both the novice and proficient electromyographer/sonographer.

Based upon Cadwell’s audience, the curriculum will encompass basics of the electrophysiologic and sonographic evaluations of nerves. The course will begin with anatomy and physiology of nerves, move toward electrophysiologic testing, sonographic assessment of nerves and ultimately, the integration of the two technologies.
